Week 7 Sept 17-21, 2018

Breaking news! Wed 7:30am Sept 19.

ISM has been in discussion with the IASAS board to host all three S1 sports next year to celebrate and kick off our ISM ‘100’ centenary year celebrations.
We received news this week that our bid was approved for the S1 Volleyball/Soccer and XC championships to be held at ISM Oct 10-12, 2019.
This is fantastic news for our sports program, our school and our centenary celebrations. To host all three sports we will require 330 beds to house the visiting student athletes. I am confident our community will rise to the challenge in order to make S1 IASAS a very special occasion in 2019.


C3/C4 soccer parents…the festival for this Saturday Sept 22nd is 1pm at Don Bosco Makati. The postponed festival from Sept 8th is rescheduled to Sept 29th 1pm at either Ateneo or Marist.  Finals on Oct 6th for teams that qualify will be at Don Bosco Makati 1pm

Well done to all our HS X Country runners who competed in wet and muddy conditions in Bangkok last weekend. A true XC experience from the sounds and photos of the racing. The next local race will be the Brent meeting this Saturday Sept 22nd and then we host the ISM twilight XC on Sept 28 with MS 3.2km race at 5pm and 5:30pm for the HS 5km race.
